I'm allergic to vegetables.

OK, I'll eat corn on the cob and have salads, and I love tomatoes. When I had my garden, those were the ones I planted (along with strawberries and such) so I could free graze across my yard. But when it comes to cooking, the only thing I really cook for myself in any variety is potatoes.

Good nutrition? Heck no. But I eat a lot of fruits and like I said, I'm allergic to vegetables.

frozen broccoli florets are a staple and I eat a couple of family size bags a week. I also buy mushrooms every week. Avocados are a treat.

I eat seasonally from the farmers market. Winter squash and sweet potatoes are on the menu now.

I don't worry about nutrition because I like vegetables and eat a varied diet.

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, carrots, green beans, and make mostly, either fresh or frozen... I very much dislike canned vegetables..
Frozen spinach also...

Raw peas, I don't like cooked mushy peas of any type..
Right now seasonal, like rutabega, acorn squash, delacata squash, butternut squash, parsnips..
The squash thing is pretty new, I'm actually starting to enjoy them...

Still some things I want to try..
Chard, bok choy, celery root, calabasa squash, leeks...

I usually pig out on root veggies - onions, carrots, beets, turnips, sweet potatoes. I like those best, year 'round. Not big on salads; can't remember the last one I had. Fresh tomatoes are great, and sauce. I don't worry about nutrition. I'm obviously not undernourished!
